IRS Official Whose Computer Crashed Was Responsible For Spinning Congress On Targeting

According to 2012 emails obtained by Congress, one of the IRS officials whose emails were lost in a “computer crash” was responsible for spinning Congress about the agency’s targeting of nonprofit groups. Nikole Flax served as ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s point person on delaying and reviewing all IRS responses to questions about what Lerner called “c4 stuff.” Flax, a frequent White House visitor, is one of seven IRS employees whose emails were allegedly destroyed in a wave of computer crashes that afflicted the IRS’ Washington and Cincinnati offices.
